           The Kokosing Farewell - Kenyon College Traditional
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Monty 
E-mail: crushmonty@gmail.com

Tuning: E A D G B E

This is one of the traditional Kenyon College songs that all alumni of the school(like myself) know well. 
I couldn't find the music written down anywhere, so I put this arrangement together. Enjoy!

Lyrics: 

Old Kenyon we are like Kokosing 
Obedient to some strange spell 
Which urges us from all reposing 
Farewell old Kenyon, fare the well 

And yet we are not like Kokosing 
Which beareth naught upon its swell 
But foam of motion's own composing 
Farewell old Kenyon, fare the well 

But when we are far from Kokosing 
We still shall hear a calling bell 
When 'round us evening shades are closing 
Farewell old Kenyon, fare the well 

And see a river like Kokosing 
In meadows sweet with asphodel
Where mem'ry dwells dear past supposing 
Farewell old Kenyon, fare the well
